    Very true, but its hard to ignore how underprepared Sony obviously were.

    Curious if we will see any attempts on other big companies in the immediate future, Apple would no doubt hold many times more CC details than Sony, so im sure they, and no doubt MS will be doing what they can to avoid anything quite to this extent.

    Imagine if the hackers put a backdoor in and take it down again just when it goes back up.

    Bloody car owners crying about their stolen cars, its their own fault for not installing bullet proof glass and wielding up the doors. LOL

    I'm getting quite tired of this , I bought 7 games the same bloody day this happened..
    I've been waiting ever since the wait is never ending..
    Sony is ****ty for taking this long , I dont know why people feel sorry for sony when clearly they're at fault..
    Someone robs my house and it's the robbers fault , yeah right..
    please dont even try using that line if your a fracking billionaire and sell technology for a living..
    If the robber wants to rob you the robber can... wtf
    According to this logic there should be no security then , since it's pointless because no matter what you do a hacker is going to get in no matter what..
    The robber cant if the security he's facing is alot more he can deal with..
    It's your fault , it's always your fault for not being prepared..
    You only get excused if you took the best possible steps of security available and necessary..
    Dont even try using the free online gaming crap , if Microsoft is a bigger crook for charging people to play their games online , it doesn't make sony a saint for not stooping that low..

    ^^ Look, at the end of the day, any system that is connected on the internet has its data avaliable for anyone to steal. No amount of security can stop every attack known to man. You use the internet, you accept the risks involved. Thats why my CC I use for PSN [and all online purchases] has a $500 spending limit, because I expect it to be stolen a half-dozen times over its lifetime.

    Anyone who puts their CC on any site, be it PSN, Amazon, or Paypall, should fully expect the card information to get stolen.

    Oh yeah, its a complete coincidence.
    A week after anon promise their biggest attack ever due to Sonys battle with geohot, sony gets hacked bad AND a file with the anon signature gets planted in their servers.
    COMPLETE coincidence.

    They don't actual state who did the hack, they only state what they found on the server, and later on in the letter when asked have they found those responsible they state no.

    The full letter is here for all to read.
